JOYSTICK WARRIORS provides the clearest account yet of the latest research on this issue. Drawing on the insights of media scholars, military analysts, combat veterans, and gamers themselves, the film trains its sights on the wildly popular genre of first-person shooter games, exploring how the immersive experience they offer links up with the larger stories we tell ourselves as a culture about violence, militarism, guns, and manhood.

|#15778/0685 TOUGH GUISE 2: Violence, Manhood and American Culture (Abridged Version)|
TOUGH GUISE 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men - and women - to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Jackson Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American-style militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Sub-titled. *This DVD includes two ABRIDGED versions - a 52-minute version edited for length, and a 46-minute "clean" version edited for violence, sexual content, and strong language.

|#15811/0203 VIRUS OF VIOLENCE|
Are violent video games in any way responsible for recent mass killings perpetrated by young men? In this video a retired U.S. army colonel presents evidence to substantiate that connection. His premise is based on the fact that modern soldiers who are being prepared for battle, undergo a planned deconditioning process that allows them to dehumanize their "enemies" in the field, a process that he claims is very similar in effect to that experienced by children, youths and even adults subjected to hour upon hour of violent video games. Very troubling and quite convincing.
|#10099/2040 WAKING UP TO VIOLENCE|

Clarity and unflinching directness must be used to place the responsibility for violence where it belongs, with the man who is choosing to use it. *Includes a 40 page Facilitator's Guide
